Policing in action

I spent much of Thursday with the rapid response units based at Horsham police station. I left enormously impressed with the professionalism of the officers concerned and their camaraderie and mutual support.

RAF at 100

It was great to join our local Horsham Squadron of the Air Cadets and veterans at the Carfax War Memorial and afterwards at St Marys for “Battle of Britain” Sunday.  The annual event remembers the climax of the Battle of Britain, on 15th September, 1940 when 1,500 aircraft took part in air battle
